What Bug Is That? (Virtual Explorer Day)

June 16, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am PDT

What bug is that?

Join us and North Vancouver Club leader Tricia Edgar for a virtual bug hunt. We’ll examine the world of forest invertebrates, sometimes known as bugs! How are they well-adapted to the coastal temperate rainforest, and what invertebrates can you expect to find in the areas around your home? We’ll have a quick introduction to invertebrates, then we’ll head out into the forest on a live bug search so that you can see some of our local invertebrates close up.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
